The incident took place in Bhiwani’s Labour Colony. “Earlier as well, Hriday had manhandled Harihar and Sangeeta suspecting them of having an illicit relationship. His family had intervened and asked him to trust his wife. But Hriday was still not convinced. A few days ago, he took Harihar and Sangeeta to a nearby temple and made them swear that they were not involved. He also made Sangeeta tie a rakhi to Harihar,” a police officer said.
“However, Hriday continued to suspect Sangeeta and today morning, he attacked both by throwing acid on their faces. We are conducting raids to arrest him.”
Dr Kulwant Phogat of Bhiwani Civil Hospital, said: “Both the patients have sustained severe acid injuries on their faces and other body parts. Harihar’s condition is very critical, for which he has been referred to Rohtak PGIMS. Sangeeta has also sustained severe injuries.”
